What is the cardinal difference in the zeolite in ZOI formulations?
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (00:00):
Substances that are in solution in water solution or behave as they are in a water solution, have a unique characteristic… CAN BE ABSORBED IN THE GUT! And this is a cardinal difference between the water solution of water-soluble zeolite, that we have it in all ZOI Global formulations compared to any other zeolite that is a powder, or a water suspension.
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (00:38):
Thank you so much for that explanation, Dr. Nikolaos, and I think you just solidified why at ZOI Global we’re able to say no other zeolite on the planet can travel where ZOI Global zeolites are capable of traveling. It’s that simple. Every zeolite, regardless, whether it’s a suspension, water suspension, or a powder, it’s going to stay and work in the gut. So thank you so much for that. Thank you for that clarification, Dr. Nikolaos, you know, that was a struggle for me initially to really grasp the magnitude of it. And man, once it sets in and you realize, gosh, at 5 foot 11, I have a whole lot of body that needs this zeolite, not just my gut. You know? So.
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (01:28):
Let’s add one, one more detail here. I believe it’s very critical to realize this in ZOI Global formulations, we have the water solution of water-soluble zeolite fragments. Now this is patented. This belongs to Metron nutraceuticals and to now ZOI Global and to nobody else. Within this water solution that we have, there are some particles of the zeolite that can not be absorbed in the gut. So here is the extremely important information that I want all friends to have in their mind, ZOI Global zeolite, water-soluble zeolite, can act in the gut and further from the gut to offer a systemic action. That’s very important.
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (02:40):
It’s, it’s critically important, and to your point, Dr. Nikolaos, once that settled in with me, and I really understood the magnitude of it, where it can act in both. It can act in the gut like every powder and every suspension.
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (2:59):
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (3:00):
But it also can act head to toe systemically across the body and other places.
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (03:06):
Correct, Correct, Correct. With one exception, presently, we do not claim penetration of the blood-brain barrier. Presently, we don’t claim action in the central nervous system. This may change in the future. There are studies that are in place in order to find if our water solution of water-soluble zeolite fragments can get into the central nervous system. We don’t know. And for this reason we don’t claim it. Denise, but it made me, it is laughable when we hear from others that tend to contaminate the social media, with their zeolite powders or zeolite suspensions, claiming that their products can, can act in the central nervous system. Powders in suspension cannot be absorbed in the gut. How in the world can reach the central nervous system? Okay.
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (04:15):
Excellent. And I’m so glad you said that. Dr. Nikolaos, because there’s a lot, as we said, there is a lot of misinformation and setting the record straight and giving people the truth is exactly what the focus is here. So thank you immensely for that further clarification. It was invaluable.
